  1. Hey all, Just updated to MacOS 12.3.1 and Zothero stopped working. Logged in here to see it's a known problem and one that looks like it isn't an easy fix. I want to support what @lutefish said regarding @deanishe's amazing work for a workflow he doesn't even use, and how much time it has saved me and so many other people over the years. It's certainly time to buy him another beer or 3. I won't be getting into installing Python 2 I don't think, I'm not doing as much academic work as I used to. Anyway, if this is the last of ZotHero then I'm a little sad! Cheers @deanishe and thanks for all the fish.
  2. This doesn't seem to import for me. I get this error: The workflow you are trying to import is invalid. Mac Big Sur. Alfred 4.3.4
  3. Hey Deanishe. Still wanting to spread the love about this workflow. Any objections if I just go ahead?
  4. Ok, I'll wait until you've given it its own thread then start spreading the word.
  5. @deanishe Would you mind me letting people know about this workflow on other sites. Ie. Zotero forums and whatnot? If you don't mind, I presume I would direct them to the github page?
  6. Thanks @deanishe. Same issue of me not understanding how the workflows work! But worth a try. I don't want to hijack this thread, -BUT- if I did, I would say I have tried this script http://dumptext.com/4baaCaig/raw/ and some others. And everytime I get: Error Service invoked too many times for one day: route. (line 8). And when I reduce the size of the spreadsheet that doesn't seem to help, but I presume I need to wait 24hours for the service to reset, so that didn't help to debug. I've actually done it manually now, (with a little help from Keyboard Maestro) it didn't take long. At various points I've had the above script and similar working a little, but usually only part of the spreadsheet. If I came back to the spreadsheet (google sheets) it would usually start again rather than trying to complete the ones that had already been done, therefore not solving the error issue. If that makes sense. Anyway.... @stuartcryan's excellent workflow isn't the place for me to be discussing this, and its done. Next years tax return I'll try again!
  7. Just came across your workflow. Great work! Here's a feature request that may not be feasible. What if a modifier copied the distance to the clipboard. I'm doing my taxes and going through hundreds of journeys. Tried to automate it with google sheets but can't get paste the multiple requests error, hence looking on Alfred. I'm about to go do it manually (probably using your workflow, I'll see what works best), but it might be useful for others in the future?
  8. I can't see how it would. Unless your searching for a very short last name, like 'Oh'. I suppose then it could annoy someone. Benefits outweigh the negative in my opinion, but we could wait and see if others have an opinion. Thank you very much! It was a very small price to pay, two beers. I hope other users do the same, it was great work that you had little or no reason to do!
  9. Now the work has started again its great to have this workflow. A reminder to myself and anyone else that uses ZotHero to buy @deanishe a beer or two. I'm doing that now. Personally, I would find being able to use first name in the author search useful as well. I know its common practice to refer to authors by their last name, but sometimes, the brain just doesn't work that way and all you can think of is the first name.
  10. I've been on Christmas break, and have been away from the computer for the most part. I did notice today that when I chose zotconf it told me that the workflow was up to date even though I didn't have the latest one. I don't know if that's an issue for you, but the update worked flawlessly. I'll keep testing it.
  11. I've been holding of replying while I try to work out what's going on. While I can see that might be an issue if you're using notes a lot, it wasn't my issue. Mine was a stand-alone note, created by Zotero-File-New Note Maybe a stand-alone note is not actually an item then since the option above File-New Note is File-New item? So a note belonging to an item, is indexed and a stand-alone note isn't? I'm just guessing. A stand-alone note in zotero can't be edited like a normal entry - it has no meta-data that I can see, which supports my guess about it not being an item. I can't change the item type therefore. Notes belonging to items are being searched, which is fantastic. It's really not an issue, but perhaps good to know. I only have 4 stand alone notes, but sometimes I use them while working. I can create parent items for them, and then they can be found. It makes sense that they aren't really an 'item' in the library as they can't be cited, they have no creator or title. As I understand it. EDIT: Maybe I'm wrong about it not having a title, as the JSON export clearly shows it does, but it's just taken from the first line of the note.
  12. Here's an example of a note type entry not showing in results.

  13. Could you also add entry type: note to the search? I can't stop myself saying how great this is.
